Catch Me If You Can- Defense

Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the thing I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.

WALT: Defensive skills and movements
Success Criteria:

Body Movement
Weight on balls of feet
Feet shoulder width apart
Knees flexed
Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
Arms within confines of body
Take feet to ball
Land with a SBP
Body angled to see player and ball
Anticipate pass and player movement

Restrictive Marking
Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
Stay close to the attacking player
Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
0.9m from ball carrier

Evaluation: I personally, don't really like sports, so doing CMIYC was leaving my comfort zone. I think that with all the skills I have learnt, I would give myself 7/10
Feedback/Feedforward: I think the same you did really well with CMIYC but you could push yourself just that little bit froward #Kyan
